The Marshalltown-based Central Iowa Quilt Sew-ciety (CIQS) will host its third annual autumn Quilts of Valor ceremony, Saturday, Sept. 23 at 2 p.m. at the Marshalltown Mall. Wednesday morning, CIQS members were on hand to label the quilts, while mall employee Scott Wacha hung the quilts all around the perimeter of mall. Eighteen of those quilts will be presented to veterans during the QOV ceremony, and the remaining 100 or so are part of the CIQS’s annual quilt show. Those pieces will remain on display until October 1. The public is asked to vote for Best in Show, by casting a ballot at Heavenly Breads.
